Hercule Poirot Inspired Tea Caddy

The Literary Tea Company


“In the words of a best seller. You’ve nothing on me.”

Undoubtedly one of Agatha Christie's greatest mystery novels. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again!

This domed tea caddy has an inner lid as well to seal in the freshness of the leaves and contains 100g of loose leaf tea (makes up to 40 cups).

You will also find inside the caddy a dear little wooden tea scoop, an ideal way to serve tea from the caddy!


Blenders Notes:

Chocolate Fudge Black Tea: This tea blend is rich and luxurious and would undoubtedly be the type of decadent cake served while journeying on the Orient Express, even if there was a murderer at large. What better match than chocolate and caramel to make a delicious cup of extravagant tea!
